The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is now in its 15th year and takes place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th May 2017. This ever-growing festival of running is now a major event in the Scottish sporting calendar. Starting in Edinburgh, the course heads out through East Lothian offering stunning views and an unforgettable running experience.
The urge to push ourselves, whether its physically, mentally or emotionally, is something many of us share.
On Saturday July the 9th I went up to Keswick to take part in the Borrowdale 21k Trail Run, part of a series of trail races that weekend, including a 5k along the shores of Derwentwater, and a marathon taking in Scafell Pike.
This was to be my first ever marathon at grand old age of 52 although I've run 3 half marathons. I did run marathon distance with Ben Smith (the 401 guy) a few weeks back around Morecambe but this doesn't really count as we had stops for cake and bacon butties! In the run up I hadn't run in 3 weeks because of a niggling calf injury so thought total rest would give me fresh legs for the day.
